A friend recently gave me a great tip – if you have a whole bunch of bananas going spotty and want to keep them for later in the week (or month) – FREEZE them. A little helper was recently in the house and we had a morning to fill, so decided to make use of those frozen bananas with these easy muffins. I also added some pomegranate seeds to the second batch (about 5 or 6) which were also just as delish!

Soften butter and add to mashed bananas. Add beaten egg, sugar, honey and vanilla. Add in baking soda and stir in flour (don’t overmix). If using, stir through pomegranate seeds.
